The Seattle Seahawks still have many holes to fill in the draft and in free agency (if there is free agency this season), but theyve locked up the man who may have been their best player in 2010
and were not talking about a new deal for Matt Hasselbeck
Seattle reached a four-year agreement with running back/kick returner Leon Washington
, according to multiple reports. Traded on April 24th, 2010, by the New York Jets for a fifth-round Seattle pick, Washington was the point man for a Seahawks special teams unit that proved to be one of the NFLs best. The deal is said to total $12.5 million, with an undisclosed guaranteed amount, and could reach $16 million with incentives.
